SilverStone Primera PM01 Mid-Tower Chassis
The front of the Primera PM01 is stunning to look at fresh out of the box. Angles at the top and bottom the peak in the middle, white plastic all around the edge, and a vast expanse of steel mesh in the middle angled to match the aesthetic. No name, no logo, nothing to detract from its style.
Moving to the top of the chassis, we see that SilverStone split the front I/O so that it is on both sides. On the left of the chassis, just behind the bezel, there is the power button and HDD activity LED, both of which light up with blue LEDs.
Over on the right side of the PM01 is where we find the connectivity. In a groove that drops down into the top panel, there are the HD Audio jacks, USB 2.0 ports, followed by the USB 3.0 ports. Next to the body line, much closer to the edge, there is a switch to enable to deactivate the chassis LEDs, in the fans, along the rails, and on the outside of the chassis.
The rest of the top of the PM01 is solid, made of plastic, and ridged in the center as it slowly increases in height towards the back. There are some body lines on either side that look like venting, but SilverStone has another trick hidden here instead.
The body lines are tight, but the plastic is slightly different than the white paint on the steel parts. We like that SilverStone got creative with the feet to add some style as we find at the top, and while the window is not our favorite, there is no view of bays or HDD cages.
In the back, there is a lot to cover. All of the airflow comes out the venting at the top if you use fans on the roof of the chassis. The doors are held on with thumbscrews, the exhaust fan and rear I/O are at the top, seven expansion slots in the middle, and room for a PSU at the bottom.
The right side of the PM01 gets similar treatment to what we found on the left side. There is the intake looking top panel, the panels are all nice and tight, and curving feet used along the bottom.
Under the chassis, we located the dust filter at the back and room for a hard drive to screw into the floor in front of it. As for the chunky plastic feet, they offer rectangular pads at the lowest spots to be sure this chassis stays in place.
